Outdoor Family Ministry
Due to COVID-19 concerns while there are no children’s Sunday School classes, we have started hosting a time for families and children to gather outside before Sunday morning worship services. This time includes singing and a Bible lesson, followed by time for fellowship and time for children to play outside prior to the worship service.
Ministries for Men
Men gather together for fellowship at each other’s homes, local restaurants, or for outings such as sporting events.
Ministries for Women
Women in Ministry
The women of Church Creek are organized into four key areas (hospitality, fellowship/activities, discipleship, and service) and led by a leadership team. The purpose of Church Creek Women in Ministry is to encourage and equip women to be active disciples of Jesus Christ, by growing deeper in their faith, their relationship with one another, and their ministry to Christ and His people. The focus of WIM is to encourage, serve and help women by providing teaching and opportunities to grow spiritually, physically, and emotionally.
The WIM Hospitality team has an emphasis on church-wide hospitality. The areas of hospitality include:
- Organizing and overseeing church fellowship meals (held in Feb., Apr., June, Oct., and Dec.)
- Organizing and overseeing special fellowship events in conjunction with the Leadership Team

- Organizing volunteers for Sunday morning coffee and post-church service snacks
